Could you please elaborate on this last part about changing after flying part of it?

PS: You're not a certain 59-year old with an artist name similar to your login name here, who would be well used to travelling between LAX and LHR in first class, would you???

Nope, just a guy who rides a Trek (Madone 5.9) Bike. Also, I like your optimism - lets fly us some Air France!!

What matters for getting 300%/60% is that it's AF *marketed* (at least for after Jan 1). to my reading it doesn't matter who sells you the ticket as long as it has a AF flight number on your ticket.

I bought from AF because I couldn't (quickly enough) get Delta to give me first class and/or AF flight numbers.

Yes, they are JV partners and do work together on pricing fares, but I suspect both airlines still independently determine and file their own fares.
As apart of the JV, Delta has been delegated responsibility for pricing AF originating (both one-way and r/t) from the US. AF is responsible for pricing originating from Europe. This is why this fare worked both round-trip and one-way from the US but not the other way around from Europe.

Everyone's receipt says that.

But it doesn't mean you're not subject to a hefty re-price if you actually go to change your ticket!!!

Looking forward to your updates!!!!
I have no problem in you thinking that I am not on this flight, but let me just show you the difference between the ticket I bought online, and the one AF issued me. Note the fare, on is 1515ishUSD one is 7500ishEUR.
Meaning that they manually issued my ticket at the regular price, and only chargers me 1289ish EUR on my CC.
As in the system I paid the normal price, it won't ever never be CXed (by AF at least)

Wow! Flying La Premiere but using an iPhone running iOS 6!

That's very interesting, it sounds like you might stand the best chance of getting away with it

I didn't question your post; it was others claiming I was stupid for believing you.

Only the first flight. Changing return date (or adding a CDG stopover) should not reprice.

Then I invite you to please post your changed return (inbound) date showing a change fee of $0....

(Please note: I already changed my inbound flights for no fee - while the deal was still live. It is no longer possible to change for free, as evidenced below)

Where can you find the second document? I only received the electronic ticket document by email.
